First-Ever Gay Cards Sold in Major Grocery Chain
The cards are targeted to LGBT couples, but designed with tasteful, elegant motifs that appeal to mainstream buyers. Greeting themes include cards for same-sex weddings, unions, anniversaries, holidays -- including Valentine's Day -- and everyday occasions, openly addressing same-sex relationships, offering sentiments to “son and son-in-law” and “daughter and daughter-in-law.”
Sandi Timberlake, owner of A Little To The Left and a board member of the San Diego chapter of PFLAG, launched her business based on her own need to find tasteful and appropriate greeting cards to send to her son and son-in-law for their special occasions. Finding nothing that appealed to her, and realizing that other people like her must have the same need, she decided to create them and launched A Little To The Left in September 2008. She refers to her collection as being “gay friendly and mother approved.”
